Jean-baptiste Lamarck Quote: On our planet, all objects are subject to continual and inevitable changes which arise from the essential order of things.

Jean-baptiste Lamarck Sayings: It is not the organs-that is, the character and form of the animal's bodily parts-that have given rise to its habits and particular structures.
